Hi everyone,

thanks for raising this Shadi,

It's my opinion that we should have @article for the note, being part of 
the RDWG Symposium Series, each year represented by a volume and each 
Note represented by a separate issue.

I think we should have @inproceedings or @incollection for the papers 
within a specific symposium - probably @inproceedings.

Cheers

Si.

If we want to convey that the current report belongs to a series of reports both "series" in @incollection and "volume" and "number" in article have this connotation for me. While I'm quite ambivalent about all this, perhaps we should focus more on whether we want "A part of a book having its own title" or "an article from a journal or magazine".
